Anyone have a good dairy, egg and soy free ice cream recipe to make in an ice cream maker? We get sorbets sometimes for ds but they just aren't the same as a creamy ice cream. I don't know how creamy a rice milk based ice cream would be but I thought it might be worth a try!

I don't have a recipe, but we buy Rice Dream Vanilla flavored ice cream.

We couldn't do Rice Dream. I tried a rice milk based ice cream, but it never thickened. I use coconut milk as a base. The recipe I use is on my blog (in my signature). It's pretty creamy.

Rice Dream has soy lecithin I think.

Omg that stuff looks delicious AND they sell it here in town! : Now I just have to wonder if there's corn in their vanilla extract. I'm going to call them tomorrow and ask (or rather, I'll make dh call because I hate calling ppl lol).

Another one I've heard of is called Nadamoo but I couldn't find it locally and when I e-mailed them a question they never replied back, so that kind of stinks.

I can't get their site to come up right now to check the ingredients, but I'm pretty sure the plain vanilla flavor doesn't. None of the other flavors have been safe for us, though.

Oops- you're right!! But it has guar gum... so it's out for us. We haven't done Coconut Bliss either, even though it looks fabulous, because they make flavors with nuts... so I'm sure it's made on shared equipment. It's so sad.... it's been REALLY hot here the last couple days. It would be nice to have a cold treat!

I haven't found any that don't have at least one ingredient on our bad list... I don't know why I even bother looking. I really need to get it through my head that I just can't have ANY packaged food!! I will have to stick to my homemade coconut milk ice cream this summer. Maybe I should buy an ice cream maker... mmm

I bought one this spring. Clearance special for $14.99 (the kind where you pre-freeze the bowl and it only takes about half an hour of electric churning). It's pretty good for making coconut ice cream. And it's really creamy. It freezes too hard for me if there are any leftovers, but now we just make sure there aren't any leftovers!

Ditto this. We have a cuisinart. The key is cooling the mixture before putting in the frozen bowl. Delish. Haven't tried sorbet but i imagine it would work.

Where are you guys getting coconut milk that does not have guar gum or some other stabilizer in it? The brand I used to buy didn't have anything added (I think i was Taste of Thai??), but they started adding guar gum or something. Now the only kinds I can find in the whole foods stores have things added. Sorry I am blanking on the brand names we have around here.

What do you buy?

Buy or check out from the library "Vegan Planet." This cookbook has ice cream recipes that don't use tofu. I replace the soy milk with other different vegan milks.

Ok what's bad with guar gum? You guys are freaking me out. What's it a derivative of? I know xanthum gum is corn derived...

FTR, I had dh call Coconut Bliss and asked them about their vanilla extract and they told him it was corn free. Now, is it really? Who knows for sure : But dd's reaction to corn is just a red butt that does not seem to cause her any discomfort...it's only if I keep consuming it that her other reactions begin. So I'm going to go ahead and give it a try and I'll try to remember to update if she reacts to it or not!

Guar gum is derived from a legume (guar plant). While I react to two legumes (soy, peanut), I'm fine with the rest of the family.

I blend coconut milk with frozen fruit. It's kinda like soft serve until the fruit melts, then it's more like a smoothie.

I found a couple ok brands at our huge Asian market here. They both had some type of additive.. one was potassium meta bisulphate or something like that, and the other was __??__ meta bisulphate. No clue what either of them are, but from my googling they didn't look like a corn or legume product, so we went for it. DD seemed ok with them (seemed being the key word, since we are STILL not at baseline... so really, who knows.)

Sorry... Legumes are no good for us. Well, green peas and peanuts... and I'm too scared to try anything else in the family.

We used to be on the SCD, for about three or four years, and guar gum was illegal on the diet. It's a polysaccharide. Certain soluble fibers can feed the bad bacteria. We have some gut issues at our house again, so that's just been on my mind.

If you don't have gut issues then I would think it wouldn't be a problem.

I get my guar-gum free coconut milk at an Asian market as well. I think the one I use is Arroy-D. I use it for coconut milk yogurt and coconut milk ice cream, and all sorts of baking.

The Asian market is a heck of a lot cheaper too. And they have all sorts of rice pastas there too (much cheaper than a health food store).

Kathy, every time you mention the Asian food market, I think, "I've GOT to go over there!" We have one not 3 blocks away and I've never been. I need to put it on my calendar or something

Get over there. Thats where I get my bulk rice to make rice milk too. Now I'm somewhere else for the summer (3 hours from home) and I can't find good coconut milk anywhere. I should have stocked up. Instead, I stocked up on oyster crackers and the triscuit type crackers from Trader Joes and now neither kid can have wheat. Ugh.

I'm the OP and I guess I should have added to the list of allergens for us. DS is allergic to coconuts as well as all other tree nuts, so I guess coconut ice cream is out for us. Have ony other of you tried to make ice cream with rice milk? I have searched for recipes and I do find some, I've just not wanted to waste my time experimenting if it's going to tank. DS is 7 yo and I've experimented ALOT! Thought I'd get some help from all you other creative mama's out there!

Thanks!!

Vanilla extract may or may not contain gluten. It also may or may not contain wheat or corn. Most extracts are made with wheat or corn alcohol.

Also, I just found this recipe online.

I just got Turtle Mountain Purley Decadent with Coconut Milk ice cream today. It so good!We got the coconut flavor. I think it must be very similar to the coconut bliss ice cream.
